I had my doubts about those pineapple chunks, but after they'd cooked a while and absorbed the chipotle flavor - wowser! I used two pounds of meatballs, but kept the rest of the ingredients as listed, 2 chipotle chiles, and then added 1/2 cup chicken broth. This was very well received at a bridal shower. Just enough heat to make it interesting but still appealing to a broad audience. Update: I've made this many times, and no longer add any brown sugar. The pineapple and cranberry add enough sweetness.
